The Alameda County Waste Management Authority (ACWMA) is considering adopting a fee of $9.55 per year per residential unit, collected through the property tax roll, to support countywide household hazardous waste collection. The Alameda County Household Hazardous Waste Program provides safe, legal, environmentally sound collection and disposal services for residential household hazardous waste such as paint, solvents and pesticides.
A new benchmark service from StopWaste, the county's solid waste management authority, is intended to help residents achieve our community recycling goals. Alameda County households reduced the percentage of recyclable or compostable materials in their garbage carts from 60% to 42% between 2008 and 2012. Progress has been made, but there is still more to be done. The Benchmark Service helps by measuring and reporting on our progress every year.
The first Benchmark Service report was mailed in late January 2014. Future reports will be sent at least once per year. To fund the benchmark service, StopWaste is assessing an annual fee of $1.81 on all residential and commercial garbage accounts in Alameda County effective July 1, 2013. The annual fee is included in waste hauling bills. Residents who wish to unsubscribe to the service should contact StopWaste at www.StopWaste.org/Benchmark or by calling (877) 786-7927. Requests to unsubscribe received after March 31, 2014 may not be approved.
